Excursions in the Marine Park

Excursions in the Marine Park

The Marine Park of Zante (Greek: Εθνικό Θαλάσσιο Πάρκο Ζακύνθου), was established on 22 December 1999 and it is the first marine national park in Greece. It covers an area of 135 Km2 and is the habitat of the Caretta Caretta turtles.

The only way to explore it is by renting a boat or booking an excursion. In the park you can observe the Caretta Caretta turtles and swim in the caves that characterise this area. Our tours are designed so that you can enjoy the beauties of the marine park, swimming at the Marathonisi island and in the caves and allowing you to observe the turtles swimming in their natural environment, in compliance with the measures dictated by the WWF.

You can choose whether to book an excursion or rent a boat for your exclusive use WITH or WITHOUT skipper.

The standard boat does not require a boat licence, however if you are looking for more comfort you can book a boat with a skipper.
